Can anyone tell me what time you need to get to the theatre to be sure of getting a day seat please?
Got there (earlier than intended) at 8:40 yesterday and was 2nd in queue. 3rd person arrived about 9:20. By 10:00 there were around 10 people in the queue. The weather was foul - cold wet and windy - which might have put others off.
Production is brilliant and well worth catching if you like (or want to try) Sondheim.
£25 side front circle seats are good - you miss very little by not seeing feet or the stage traps, and the compensation of seeing superb Staunton's facial expressions more than make up for the loss. The only time I was aware of having to look up a little uncomfortably was during Epiphany when the Barbers shop moves to the very front of the stage with Todd at 1st floor level.
Would have liked a larger orchestra for the fantastic score, but Adelphi orchestra were good.
Best set and lighting of any ST that I have seen.
